Inside History Live! returns to Chester this March with an evening of Crime, Controversy and Corruption from the 19th Century.
Dr Stephen Carver, the author of "The 19th Century Underworld" (Pen & Sword books), will be our special guest speaker for the evening as he tells us more about the seedy underbelly of the Victorian Period. From the bodysnatching murderous duo of Burke and Hare to the 1888 Whitechapel Murders, Dr Carver will vividly bring the period to life.
Our Editor, Nick Kevern, will begin the evening with "The trials of Lizzie Borden" which will focus on the double murder of her father and step mother in Fall River in 1892 and Borden's subsequent trials through Jury, media and public opinion.
Dr Carver will also be launching his new book, The Author who outsold Dickens: The Life and Work of W.H Ainsworth, at the event with copies available for purchase at the event. Dr Carver will also be at hand for signings and a chat.
Copies of Inside History: Crime and the Underworld will also be available.
